Our Team Leader receives a surprise visitor at his home this evening with a wonderful donation for the team

This evening at his home address our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE welcomed a surprise visitor and one well known visitor, bearing a wonderful gift for the team.

Team Call Out member Matthew Hailwood, who joined the team in February 2007, arrived at Garry’s house in the company of his mum, Janet Hailwood.

Janet wanted to personally hand over a very kind gift to the team, explaining to Garry that in lieu of presents at her recent birthday celebrations (We’ll not disclose which birthday, but its the second time Janet’s celebrated her 25th!) she had asked for donations to Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.

Janet then kindly handed over a very large number of donations amounting to a staggering total of £435.00.

This is an amazing donation, and our thanks are expressed to all of Janet’s family and friends who made such kind personal donations to the team, in lieu of presents at Janet’s birthday.

We also wish to pass on belated ?0 Birthday wishes to Janet from every single Bolton MRT team member, with thanks for such a kind thoughtful and very supportive birthday act of kindness to the team.
